Associated Press Hypes Over-Sensitivity To Racism To Stifle Free Speech

AP finds racism everywhere.

Swastikas, nooses, a KKK hood, graffiti, epithets and jeers.

An ugly spate of bias incidents has crossed several University of California campuses over the past month, causing consternation, outcry and fear that bigotry is alive among the young and educated.

Sounds terrible! Let's look case by case to see what these hate crimes are all about:

...an off-campus "Compton Cookout" party that mocked ghetto stereotypes, a noose and KKK-style hood found on campus and a student making racially derogatory remarks on a student-run TV station...

The school paper later published a letter of apology from a female student who wrote that she had only been playing with a rope, accidentally left in the library and did not mean to offend...

a Mexican-themed "Fiesta Friday" party.

Shocking! Theme-styled parties, someone playing with a rope, a white hood, and some unknown "derogatory" remarks! AP never gives the specifics of the other incidents: what did the graffiti say? where was the white hood founds? As for the swastikas and heckling Israel's prime minister, it is well known that the anti-Israel pro-Palestine groups in universities are radical liberal Democrats.

It is also important to note that the student who hung the noose that offended so many minority students, according to AP, was a minority student. AP omits that fact.

So why the oversensitivity? Are people really that worried about racism?

Well no, AP actually reports that young people are more accepting, or "liberal", about race issues. AP admits this is all about restricting free speech if some people don't like it:

Free speech is a buzzword on college campuses, which tend to be regarded as "marketplaces of ideas" where students are encouraged to express opinions freely, said Brian Levin, director of Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino.

But sometimes opinions can cross into offensiveness.

Yes, the Associated Press flat out admits they don't want people to be allowed to see anything "derogatory" or do anything that might offend someone, if the speech is "biased." AP wants "groups feel more included on campus" by outlawing free speech. AP warns that such "hate crimes are likely vastly underreported."

St. Louis Dispatch reports one such under-reported "hate crime" that involves cotton balls and two white students who were properly punished:

Two students at the University of Missouri-Columbia were suspended Wednesday after their arrests in a case of cotton balls thrown across the lawn of the campus black-culture center.

Campus police on Tuesday evening arrested the students, one of whom is from the St. Louis area, on suspicion of a felony hate crime...

Nathan Stephens, the center's coordinator, said students were offended because of the "symbolic violence" that harkened to days of slavery on cotton plantations.
